That little Rip It Up is nice, too.

Which makes me ask, do you have favorite soundchecks? They often provide candid glimpses into the band and sometimes contain amazing music, like the 10-minute private jam secreted before the Selland Arena show in July 74:

Not as compelling, but interesting nonetheless is the soundcheck from Dijon on 9/18/74...

Thanks. I had missed that. The UJB with which they open that show is my all-time favorite version, too.

And I even know of the Brokedown Palace from Dijon!

Cliff, your comment over there about it being a sickness was funny.
